Guinness World Records Museum- The Shortest Woman

Tucked away in a small corner of the Guinness World Records Museum is a small figure of the shortest woman ever recorded by the Guinness World Records organization. Pauline Musters was born in the Netherlands in 1876 and died in New York City in 1895.

A closer view of the figure. The material used for most of the Guinness World Records Museum figures seems to be some sort of fiberglass or other synthetic material, but it's not too far from the feel of many newer figures at museums like Madame Tussaud's.

The figure in front of pictures of the real Pauline Musters and the World's Tallest Man.
